The Tampa Bay Lightning are already pretty thin on defense, and now it seems like they might be having some more issues, of a very mysterious kind. According to Damian Cristodero of the St. Petersburg Times and Tribune, Eric Brewer might have suffered a pretty serious upper body injury, but nobody really knows when and where the injury happens, what the injury details are or how serious it may be.
What exactly happened to Eric Brewer? No one at the Lightning is saying except that he has an upper-body injury and is day-to-day. The funny thing is, coach Guy Boucher said the injury did not happen at a practice or in a game. Brewer practiced Tuesday but not Wednesday.
The team, as is typical of hockey injuries, was unwilling to disclose too much information about the injury. They just replied that it was "nothing serious we hope." Brewer had been among the Lightning's most important defenseman this season, and his position is even more important considering how thin the Lightning are at that position.
